Sad. I'm not a fan of the company Apple has become, but it is fairly much impossible to ignore the impact they have had.

If nothing else, I respect the fact that he held the helm as long as he did considering what, in retrospect, he must have been dealing with. It's clear that he loved what he did, and whatever one's opinion on how he ran the company, it is always tragic to see someone go in their prime while they still had so much potential.

Tip of the glass to you, Mr. Jobs. You've earned it, and you will be remembered.
